Warm fragrant water swirling around my ears. Slipping into a place where weight is literally lifted in the buoyancy.Jets are nice, but I find they can be a little tedious. I like the quiet. Listening to the waves in my own little paradise. Hearing the water move and lap against the side.
The key is a deep vessel and a lot of hot water. Lavender baby oil and Warm Vanilla Sugar bubble bath are comforting, another layer of warmth.
Before I became a mother I always had a book or something to read when I would soak. But now, I enjoy the quiet in my mind that comes with time alone. I don’t have to be constantly entertained or stimulated anymore. Peace and quiet have a new place of reverence in my life.
I hope you find peace today. I’m going to take a bath.
